UNDERSTANDING HIDDEN MANNA (prophetic types and shadows explained)

2 Timothy 3:16 KJV: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable…

2 Pet 1:19-21 KJV: We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

Inside this written Word, that reveals the living Word, are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

Col 2:3 KJV: In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

The Bible does not exaggerate: if it says all the treasures of wisdom are hid in it then it is so.  Notice these treasures are there but they are hidden. In the same way God’s plan for every individual life is hidden in the Bible:

Colossians 3:3 KJV: For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

Revelation 22:19 KJV:  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Since this truth is hidden it is only the Holy Spirit that can guide us into this type of truth. Without the Holy Spirit we can easily get ‘lost’, so to speak, in the ‘maze’ of the Word and be deceived or misled by our flesh or the devil into misinterpreting or misapplying the hidden truth in the written Word.

The Holy Spirit guides us into all this hidden truth in the written Word by interpreting spiritual truth with symbolic spiritual language.

John 16:13 KJV: Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

1 Corinthians 2:13 NIV: This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.

All these hidden truths were all things to come in the future when men inspired by the Holy Spirit were writing the Bible.

All these things to come are hidden in types and shadows in the written Word; the Holy Spirit shows or reveals these things to us by helping us to understand these hidden truths, types and shadows or what the Bible also calls hidden manna.

Hebrews 10:1 KJV: For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

John 16:13 KJV: Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Revelation 2:17 KJV: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

In these articles on hidden manna we will be learning the principles of interpreting hidden manna and looking at various practical examples on a regular basis.
